Island Transfers Schedule

Thevenard Island Guests
The Mackerel Islands operate a flight transfer service from the Onslow Airport to Thevenard Island. The scenic flight across takes just 7 minutes.

Direction Island Guests
Are required to take their own boat across as there is no airstrip on Direction Is. After checking in with our team based at the Onslow Beach Resort, launch from the public boat ramp at Beadon Creek, Onslow.

The below flight timetable is intended to be used as a guide only and is subject to change. Services may be changed or substituted at short notice, due to weather conditions, passenger numbers and operational requirements. Additional services may be available for special events and long weekends. Please arrive at the airstrip 30 minutes prior to departure time.

We can carry a maximum of 15kg bag + 5kg carry on per person. If travelling with children up to 50kg, we can take a 30kg bag per child for a family of up to 4 people. For families of 5 the 15kg + 5kg maximum applies. Soft bags are preferred, we can supply these if required. If your baggage is oversized, you can repack into the supplied bag/s. Fishing rods up to 2m can be taken on board but please remove all hooks. Empty decommissioned dive tanks can be taken on board. No dangerous goods allowed.
